Last Saturday, November 11 was observed as the 72nd Remembrance Day.
As expected, President Nana Akufo-Addo joined ex-Servicemen and the security agencies at the Christiansborg War Cemetery, at Osu in Accra to mark the occasion.
One key feature which caught attention was the inclusion of the late Major Maxwell Mahama on a banner made for the occasion.
The banner which had the late Major Mahama in the middle had veterans like Sergeant Cornelius Francis Adjetey.
Sergeant Adjetey and two others, Corporal Patrick Attipoe and Private Odartey Lamptey, were killed in 1948 by British police officers when attempted to pay protest the non-payment of their benefits as war veterans for the Great Britain.
Their death is regarded as the basis for the 1948 riots which in turn started the processes towards Ghana's eventual independence in 1957.
They have enjoyed some form of heroic status for their fates and for the late Major Maxwell Mahama to be counted among them, it is heartwarming.
Meanwhile parliament has passed the Major Mahama Trust Fund bill and it is waiting for President Akufo-Addo to assent to.
